  Mail Server Downtime due to Hardware Maintenance
Under Construction Posted by Axel Beckert on Wednesday August 29, @04:39PM
from the yet-another-mailserver-downtime dept.
After the unexpected downtime of our mail server today around 15:30 we will investigate some hardware issues on Thurday, 30th of August 2007 between 18:00 and 21:00. During that time the mail server will be unreachable for sending mails (SMTP) as well for receiving (IMAP, POP) or reading mails.
Update 22:00: Not all problems were solved after the planed first reboot, so the server is currently down again for maintenance.
Update 03:45: All services of the mail server are up and running again. The SpamAssassin Bayes database has been damaged unrecoverably and restoring the old database from the backup dump would have caused a much too long downtime of the spam filter and therefore the complete mail transport, so the SpamAssassin Bayes database has been reinitialised from scratch instead.
